A few standouts in my book were as follows:
- Kanella’s Grape leaf with lamb and feta dip on a pita was a unique and flavorful Greek morsel
- Tredici Zavino presented a fabulous Chicken meatball in a ginger tomato sauce that enhanced the flavor of the dish to a new level. I just loved it.
- Sancho Pistola’s Salmon Tiradito with its’ citrus notes enlightened your mouth with a bright taste. A must try.
- Bruhaus with its smoked barley malt sausage sandwich was a hit. Especially with its red cabbage slaw to take the heat down a bit.
- LaDivisa Meats Mixed grill salsa verde was very succulent and tender. These guys know how to grill.
- Alma de Cuba with there smoked Marlin Tacos were simply outstanding. I wanted them bigger but just ate a few extra because you know….Tacos !!!
- Pod presented Teriyaki Meatballs with smoked bonito and kimchi were hauntingly wonderful. The rich smokey flavor stays with you in a good way.
- The brightest dish I sampled was The Dandelion with its Tandoori cured Salmon with mango chutney and cilantro. Very light.
- Parc had an assortment of desserts that were spectacular the standout for me was there cocoa layered opera cake topped with gold leaf! Yes…Yes, you want some.
It was a Feastival for funds to raise the Arts in Philadelphia and keep this city apart and above the rest with its culture and class. Well done to all.
